Construction around Wrigley Field is set to continue as the proposed mixed-user Addison & Clark prepares to dig in. The blocky eight-story building for 1025 W. Addison which comes from M&R Development and Bucksbaum Retail Properties will bring 148 new apartments and nearly 150,000-square-feet of commercial space to the heart of Wrigleyville. And despite recent legal hurdles, the developers have just obtained the project’s first construction permit.
Demolition of the existing properties on the site was slated to begin last week, and according to DNAinfo, is expected to take two and a half months. After the site has been cleared, the developers are essentially free to go ahead and plant caissons for the SCB-designed building. The project has been reported to cost $140 million and is expected to be completed by summer 2018.
